How to FIX everything WRONG with Government at All Levels

      The Desk has been researching this matter for some time.
      Government at almost every level from....

...local school boards that waste money studying how they are wasting money while paying administrators that do absolutely nothing that contributes to the education of if the children in excess of a hundred thousand dollars a year...

... the Federal Government which refuses to listen to the American People on any and every issue that has come down the pike from Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, to keeping taxes and spending under control to obscene profits by oil companies (and government profits through fuel taxes, which do nothing to produce one drop of oil) out of the pockets of those that work for a living to government corruption to special interests at every level.

      The examples go on and on.
      State Level politicians that see nothing wrong with accepting money to their Wife's Business from the very industry they are on the state regulatory board of.
      A City Council that votes themselves pay raises after laying off workers because the city is broke. (that goes for Congress and the States as well)
      A President who buddies up to a foreign country that is actively engaged in an undeclared war against the US.
      Our Congress which does more damage to our troops under arms in a war zone than all the improvised explosives Iran can produce.

      If you read the Declaration of Independence, it is exactly THIS sort of government the Founding Fathers were upset about and rebelled against. It is far more than the oft cited but little understood: "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-"

"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, ...
  He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
  For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
  For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
  In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury."

Read the WHOLE THING here at
(will open in new window. Save it for future reference.)

      Go READ THE THING, then email the Desk and tell it, honestly and with a straight face, that we are not faced with the same conditions today to a large extent.

"For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:"

Oh yes, that was in there too.

      It isn't that the Government isn't acting in our best interest or listening to us. No. They don't have a clue. In DC they listen to each other and lobbyists and concentrate on lining their own pockets. Not only do they NOT talk to the citizens, most of them consider We The People a bother.

      Try this... CALL your State or Federal Level politician's office wherever they are this week, DC, state capital, where ever, and Just Try to talk to them. Not to the people in the office, to the Elected Official!
      The Desk has. It called the local office and they said they were in DC, so it called DC.
      "You can leave a message and we'll pass it on."
      Oh yeah.
      The Desk did. For each one, last week. It has heard back from..... ZILTCH.
      Go to any of the Presidential websites and go through their contact page and send them a question.
      The Desk did for several. It asked simple, easy to understand questions about their Thoughts and Opinions (NOT FEELINGS) on several issues....

-"Do you see nuclear power as a viable option to decrease the use of fossil fuels?"
-"Are you against ILLEGAL Immigration which allows TERRORISTS to enter our country?"
-"Are you in favor of changing Federal laws which prevent the US from making alternative fuels from crops such as sugar cane?"
-"Does Israel have the right to exist?"
-"Are you in favor of easing some regulations regarding expansion of existing refineries to increase our domestic capacity without 'green field' building of new refineries?"
-"At what point do the rights of a single individual supersede the needs of society at large?"
      Simple questions.
      Many with yes or no answers.
      How many answers did it get back?
      DOZENS. Canned responses and nonsense boilerplate from everybody from Joe Biden to Hillary to Mitt.
      In other words- Crap.
      The Desk is pretty sure if it asked any of them what they thought (not felt... THOUGHT) about ground floor Federal investment with eventual privatization to build conversion plants to turn coal into liquid fuel (gas and diesel), their brains would leak out of their nostrils. It can be done, and once running, the plants will pay for themselves and make money, however, the start up costs are quite impressive. But would a politician know that unless a lobbyist told them? No.

      And now Biden is spamming the Desk telling it how great he is... at spamming.
      Face it. NONE of these losers deserve another day at the public feeding trough.
      OK. One of these shysters will be elected President. And Heaven Help America when they are.
      BUT! We CAN and SHOULD send an unmistakable message to the rest of them.
      PLEASE copy the graphic below to every politician you can.
      Make Tshirts out of it. Post it in forums. Print it out and tape it to your car window.
      And while you're at it... see if you can get ANY them to answer a REAL question.
